TIL You can use bundle add to install a gem and add it to the Gemfile
John Gallagher posted on October 6th, 2020
I’ve wanted a one-line way of adding a gem to a Gemfile.
Today I learned you can do:
bundle add sass-rails
Boom. It installs
sass-rails to the Gemfile and does a bundle all in one.
A few other examples from the docs:
bundle add rails bundle add rails --version "< 3.0, > 1.1" bundle add rails --version "~> 5.0.0" --source "https://gems.example.com" --group "development" bundle add rails --skip-install bundle add rails --group "development, test" bundle add sass-rails --strict bundle add sass-rails --optimistic
Introduced in 1.15.
I’m off to save time and hassle with every new gem I add.
